The IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a premier forum for cyber security researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experiences related to all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network security. The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research results in communications and network security.

Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Anonymity and privacy technologies
Censorship countermeasures and privacy
Combating cyber-crime (anti-spam, anti-phishing, anti-fraud techniques, etc.)
Computer and network forensics
Cyber deterrence strategies
Game-theoretic security technologies
Implementation and evaluation of networked security systems
Information-theoretic security
Intrusion detection, prevention, and response
Key management, public key infrastructures, certification, revocation, and authentication
Malware detection and mitigation
Security metrics and models
Physical-layer and cross-layer security technologies
Security and privacy for big data
Security and privacy for data and network outsourcing services
Security and privacy for mobile and wearable devices
Security and privacy in cellular networks
Security and privacy in cloud and edge computing
Internet Security: protocols, standards, measurements
Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
Security and privacy in cyber-physical systems
Security and privacy in emerging wireless technologies and applications (dynamic spectrum sharing, cognitive radio networks, millimeter wave communications, MIMO systems, smart/connected vehicles, UAS, etc.)
Security and privacy in peer-to-peer and overlay networks
Security and privacy in WiFi, ad hoc, mesh, sensor, vehicular, body-area, disruption/delay tolerant, and social networks.
Security and privacy in smart cities, smart and connected health, IoT, and RFID systems
Security for critical infrastructures (smart grids, transportation systems, etc.)
